Meet Alfonso

This is how a man looks when he works from 7am to 2am, 6 days a week. This is how 42 appears when you are a vegetable packer in Mexico.

This is an image that must be clicked on.

Tell me what you know about him, just by looking at this picture.

He isn't getting enough to eat.

And I'm really hoping that part of the reason my organic fruits and veggies are more expensive, is that they're paying people with his job more of a fair wage than the insanely cheap 'chemical' fruit & veg from Costco.

(But I know that may not be reality. I hope it is, though.)

It is so sad. We went to Venezuela and happened to talk to a parking lot guard at a highway rest stop. He worked 12 hours a day for 6 days, got one day off, then worked 12 hours a night for 6 nights and switched again. A similar face with a similar spirit. The spirit of poverty indeed.
